Having been new to blogging I have been trawling through the internet and I have found some very interesting sites. The first of these is a site by Australian PhD candidate Bret Holman. Bret’s site, and thesis, it is all about the issue of Air mindedness (I do not think that’s a word!) and Britain. An issue, which is extremely interesting so Brett’s site, Airminded, is well worth a peek. Another very interesting site, which I had come across before I started blogging is that of American historian Mark Grimsley. Mark has some interesting articles on the development of military history, which I think anyone with any interest in the subject should have a read of. So have a look at his interestingly named Blog them out of the Stone Age. The final one, for now, it Gavin Robinson’s Investigations of a Dog, which I have been finding very interesting, especially his stuff on Early Modern Cavalry, as I am in the process of teaching the English Civil War to my AS Students and not being my particular area I did find it useful. Gavin is hosting a Military History Carnival, which will be interesting when it starts next month.
The one thing I have noticed from other peoples sites it that they have a tendency to use other sites such as WordPress. So a general question to anyone reading this – what is the best blogging site/software?
